Eagles take lead into second leg of Grand Final

Eastbourne Speedway will take a narrow lead to the second leg of the Elite League Grand Final after a tense match at Arlington last night (Monday).

The Lifestyle Eagles beat Poole 49-41. Everyone connected with the Sussex club knows it will be tough to land the title with rider Simon Gustafsson saying: “We will have to up our game.”

Team boss Trevor Geer remains confident that his team can cause the upset of the season next week. He praised all team members for a terrific performance against Poole and believes Eastbourne still have a good chance of silverware.
